The psychiatry of adult autism and Asperger syndrome, a practical guide, Traolach S. Brugha.

Summary
Autism, including Asperger syndrome, is a strongly heritable condition that can usually be diagnosed in children by the age of two or three years. Although autism is more common in the less intellectually able child, in the more able child the condition is often overlooked until adulthood. Epidemiological research has shown that most adults in the general population meeting the criteria for autism are unrecognized and undiagnosed. This work introduces adult psychiatrists, including sub-specialist psychiatrists, to autism and Asperger syndrome
